Globacom has partnered top telephone manufacturer Samsung to give its subscribers, especially the upwardly mobile executives and tech-savy youths, low call rates and exciting internet experiences on two top-of-the-range Samsung smartphones, Galaxy S3 and Note II.
Globacom’s Marketing Coordinator, Mr. Niyi Olukoya, said the two smartphones have been bundled with free six-month data plan for Glo subscribers.
He said the unique benefits for subscribers who opt for the package include 500MB free data on activation, 100MB free data every month for 6 months and discounted tariffs for voice calls at 9k/sec to nine Friends and Family and 18k/sec for calls to all other networks. The subscriber will enjoy all the benefits once he recharges with N1000 airtime monthly.
“The bundle offer is one of Glo’s strategies to satisfy the huge demand for smartphone devices bundled with mobile internet connectivity. We simply wish to provide the consumers with their choice devices and seamless internet connectivity in an all-in-one package. This partnership will put in the hands of the subscribers affordable hi-tech devices bundled with fast internet services and free airtime deals that will give them easy access to social media, mails, data downloads, Android apps and voice calls.
Olukoya said the mobile internet service on the bundled handsets rides on Globacom’s robust fibre optic infrastructure which runs from Lagos across the West African coast to the United Kingdom and the USA. “With these, the subscriber will enjoy fast and reliable Internet connection round the clock,” he said.
The statement enjoined Globacom subscribers wishing to take advantage of the special offer to visit any of the Gloworld shops in different parts of the country. Samsung Galazy S3 and Samsung Note II run on Android 4.0 Operating System, a 1.5Ghz processor and a 8mm Camera.
Globacom had earlier released the mini-sized Glo Mobile Wi-Fi that wirelessly connects multiple devices,with equal power to the internet. It uses WI-FI to enable PCs, laptops, tablets, smart phones, PSPs, to browse, send emails and connect to social networks seamlessly.
The Glo Mobile Wi-Fi comes with a free SIM and free 1GB data for the first month and another free 1GB data for the next six months based on continuous subscription.
